Annie is a young, happy foster kid who's also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they'd be back for her someday, it's been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan. But everything's about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks - advised by his brilliant VP, Grace and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy - makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he's her guardian angel, but Annie's self-assured nature and bright, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it's the other way around.Written by

When Annie drops off "DOH form number 43807-8" to the clerk at the government office, she also puts down $43.55 in change and bills. When she first puts it down, the bills are rolled up inside a small yellow elastic band parallel to the counter's edge, with the change away from Annie and towards the clerk. In the next shot the bills are vertical, the band is now a neon yellow shoelace, and the change is along the side of the rolled up bills. The clerk then removes the tie from around the bills (which is now again the original plastic band), and drops the money on the counter. She starts to drag the bills off the counter with a pencil, and in the reverse shot, as she drags the bills all the way off, all the change has disappeared. See more »

I don't know why some people don't like this movie! I don't think this movie is cheesy at all. I absolutely loved it! I love the modern take on it. I love the actors and actresses and all of the songs. I have watched it several times now. I love how Quvenzhané Wallis gives off the "okay, I don't care" act when things rise up against her character (Annie) in the movie. But as she walks away, you can see her true emotion of hurt or sadness show through. I think that shows what a good actress she is growing up to be. I love the modern take on the original songs as well as the new songs added. I think this is a very well made movie. I wish it had better reviews than it has been getting.
